Strategic Preventative Advice
Our clients include corporations, investment management companies, brokerage firms, officers, directors and executives. We help them through the judgment calls necessary to efficiently manage risk, defend investigations and preserve their business stability and reputation. Taking a proactive approach, we offer our clients strategic preventative advice on establishing, maintaining and enforcing compliance programs and addressing corporate governance issues. While addressing immediate concerns, we also evaluate the risks posed by government agencies and an aggressive plaintiffs’ bar.
Our understanding of the way government investigators, regulators, and prosecutors build cases enables us to head off or shorten investigations and avoid liability where possible – and is based on our lawyers’ deep white collar experience.
Grand Jury and Subpoena Response
Responding to a grand jury or a federal investigation subpoena involves far more than furnishing information to the investigating authorities. While responding to subpoenas and provding witnesses are important and required parts of dealing with a grand jury or federal agency investigation, successfully navigating the perils associated with an active investigation requires much more.
On behalf of corporate and individual clients, our lawyers have managed mulit-year, multi-target grand jury investigations involving numerous witnesses and worked with prosecuting and investigating agencies, in many instances to avoid indictment.
